Young writers aged 7-12 are invited to write a 500-word story for a chance to win amazing prizes, mentorship by a professional author and the opportunity to be published in a magazine! I’ve teamed up with authors Jacqueline Harvey (Alice-Miranda) and Oliver Phommavanh (Con-Nerd) to support the 2018 Australian Creative Writing Competition for kids. We’re joining forces with Penguin Random House Australia and Just Kidding Magazine to give young writers an extraordinary opportunity. Check out all the prizes, competition details, storystarters and writing tips here: https://www.justkidding.com.au/nwc Also, check out my Create page for storystarters and more.
